Historical curiosity.

Fly fishing is an old art, no arguments there?

But unknown to most is that it's not all about,nor has it been all about rising browns and atlantic salmon.
Here's a picture of a pike fly,some sort of sculpin by the looks of it from 1865!

Looks like it uses two peacock feathers for the wing and then some sort of hair material for the body.
Tied on a double hook makes this kind of a beauty!
